The remote oil filter set up was machined from… (big surprise…) aluminum.
The filter is from the kit, slightly reworked with decals I made.
The carbs are installed and plumbed, still need to make the linkages.
The door panels are ready for installation. I machined the bezels for the locks and used straight pins locks. (Driver’s side is unlocked, passenger side is locked.)I decided to hand paint the silver trim instead of BMF for a “less than brand new” look.
Except for the dash, the interior is done.
I added a lap belt for the passenger seat...
and an 8-Ball shifter knob.
The rear brakes are finished; I went with drums since my real one has them. I made them from mostly CA glue on an aluminum core with a shell of styrene and turned them on the lathe. (CA machines nicely...) The studs are small bolts embedded in the core.
The hardware that mounts the backing plates to the axle tubes and makes up the brake line fittings is more machined aluminum nuts and bolts. The cast texture was added by hand brushing Testors metalizer.Weights have also been added to balance the driveshaft… Don’t want any high speed vibrations, especially with those 4:11 gears.
First test fit of the body/interior/chassis to verify my measurements were correct before going on to prepping the body.
